Quoth the Raven


Hello Dear Friends!  The weeks fly by so fast and already it is time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. The theme for the next two weeks is to create a project around the theme of "Autumn Colors."  For my own creation, I began by applying three shades of PanPastels onto a piece of card stock.  I added stenciling with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Tim Holtz Stencils. The pocket watch die cut, also by Tim Hotz Alterations, was colored with PanPastels and shaded along the edge Vintage Photo DI.  The focal image is by Red Lead.  The finished pocket watch was added to the card panel with foam dots along with a piece of cheese cloth that was dyed with Vintage Photo and Wild Honey DIs. The card panel was layered over a remnant of autumn printed gift wrap. A piece of upcycled lace, copper Liquid Pearls, some paper leaves and a vintage button complete my card.  I hope you will pop over to FSC to see what my Design Team Sisters have dreamed up to inspire you and then I hope you will create a project of your own to share with us.  Our generous sponsor FlonzCraft will provide a $20 gift card to one lucky participant.  Best wishes, Yvonne

The combination of textures along with your choice of colors give this card such a lovely fall feel. Great idea to put your image onto the die cut pocket watch!

Fabulous project! I love the way you used those PanPastels. I just recently tried them myself. I'm afraid that I need a bit more practice. Thanks for the inspiration! ~Michelle

I've been getting so behind with your lovely work - moving house is hellish! - and this is a beauty - so glad to catch it. The glowing honey colours are lovely, and then the dramatic black stamping - great stencilling too.
